For March applicants, interviews are generally held in March and April.
The decision to call an applicant for interview is based on the University Admission Board's assessment of your portfolio, statement of purpose, academic and professional track record and references.
Creative submissions in the first year must be in more than one genre.
In the second year, submitted work focuses around the genre of your choice.
This course requires proficiency in English at the University's higher level.
If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence that you meet this requirement.
You will be assigned a supervisor who will work closely with you throughout the development of the year two final project and extended essay.
All assessed work throughout the two years of the course is subject to one-to-one feedback and discussion with a tutor.
This intensive, one-to-one input, combined with the highly interactive workshop and seminar sessions, is a distinguishing feature of the course. In the first year, four assignments (two creative, two critical), one creative writing portfolio and one critical essay are submitted.
Work is set during each residence and handed in for assessment before the next meeting.
